Henry Boot nears £100k fundraising milestone

13th March 2020

One of the UK’s leading land, property and development companies is closing in on a six-figure fundraising milestone.

Henry Boot, with its headquarters in Banner Cross, Sheffield, has to date raised more than £80,000 for good causes in the past three years, including national charity Dementia UK, and Sheffield-based St. Luke’s Hospice – and is expected to pass a £100,000 target in 2020.

Among the biggest contributors to the company’s fundraising was an initiative which encouraged Henry Boot employees to donate two hours’ pay to receive an afternoon off, with all proceeds generated being donated to charity.

Other fundraising activities included a Summer BBQ at their headquarters, Race Night and Golf Day.

In 2020, the company has selected The Children’s Hospital Charity as its charity of the year, for which it aims to raise more than £20,000.

Darren Littlewood, Group Finance Director at Henry Boot, said: “At Henry Boot, good causes and supporting charity initiatives is a core part of our company values.

“We’re over the moon to have raised such an impressive total – our staff have all contributed to this amazing achievement, whether it’s through raising funds by donating part of their pay, or by taking part in wider initiatives which raise vital awareness for good causes.

“We look forward to our charitable initiatives continuing this year as we support The Children’s Hospital Charity, a cause which does so much for so many people across the South Yorkshire region.”
